Hi, Welcome to HCM, I am Dr. Das
First of all, the sperm count is normal (>20 million/ml). But the active motile sperm is lower than normal value (
So, overall, the motility of the sperms is low which may cause serious problem.
My suggestion is to repeat the test after 3 day abstinence from sex and then give the fresh sample.
